Useless Rankings: Brown ranked eighth on list of “highest paid grads”

This is one useless ranking I can be down with. Brown tied with Stanford and Harvard (whatever) on PayScale.com’s list of highest paid graduates, averaging a starting salary of $52,300 and a mid-career salary of $119,000. While CNN implied that we’re essentially a bunch of sell-outs (“more than a third of graduates end up roaming the halls of Corporate America”), it’s worth noting that 51% of grads believe their jobs are meaningful. Those are good odds, right? So perk up, humanities concentrators, we got this!
